new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

5, 7, 5 is the structure. I guess syllables would be the most appropriate translation here.

I'll take your word for it, since I don't know anything about Japanese. I just figured the alphabets were totally different.

Japanese is actually very similar to Spanish in terms of pronunciation. If you know this table(katakana), you will be able to figure out most of the menus in imports.

Ku-ro-u-something

It's fun, if you know how to pronounce it you can at least look up most of the characters using that chart. I need to get cracking on Genki.

the " makes the character have a slightly different sound.

Normally it would be Ku-ra-u-to, but because of the double quote, it makes it a "do" sound.

Kuraudo!

New LRG games announced on an E3 stream today. I haven't heard of any of them, but it could be because I don't keep up with modern stuff. The Bunker is apparently an FMV game. They also heavily implied Windjammers is on the horizon, which would be excellent.


1 - Croixieur Sigma

2 - Layers of Fear 2

3 - Bard's Gold

4 - Ghost Blade HD

5 - The Bunker

6 - Factotum 90

7 - Mercenary Kings

8 - Claire: Extend Cut

9 - Jotun

10 - Aero

11 - The Flame in the Flood

12 - Kero Blaster

13 - 2064

14 - Volume (PS4)

15 - Momodora

16 - Va - 11 Hall - A

17 - Rive

After I finish Gypsy's Soul Blazer I think Panzer Dragon 1 is my next play through, and then Ys III. If your copy is still available, and I can afford it, I might hunt it down. I love I and II but never bought a copy, my CDR skipped during the ending so I had to youtube it - and am worried that will happen if I try to play a burned copy of III :P

Retro Thread Pilfer & Scoops Program
Here is how it works:

Offer up an item with value more than $10, shipping is paid for by the person offering. But before you can lock in the scoop, you have to offer up a "pilfer" of your own worth $10 or more in value.
- 24 hours to try to get someone to take your item. If no one takes it after 24 hours, it will revert back to the previous deal so someone else can have a chance. Feel free to change it up before your time expires.
- You need to be at least Bronze Star to participate. Regular GameTZ trade rules apply.
- Please wait until at least 2 layers of new scoops before pending trade.
- No price means free. No PayPal needs to be involved, but can be used to offer higher up items. e-Currency is OK.
- Trying not to put more limits than needed, when crap happens, we will try to work it out.

I do have Orta, and an OG Xbox to play it on, but I apologize if I implied it was not part of my playthroughs as it certainly will be. The second game in the series is the only one I did not have a physical retail copy of.
